Nirenberg to Vote “No” on Annexation

San Antonio’s City Council takes up a modified annexation plan Thursday.

It’s a compromise, engineered by Mayor Ivy Taylor.

“It brings in commercial property along 281, but does not bring in the residential subdivisions, pursuant to non-annexation agreements, until 2034,” Councilman Joe Krier told KTSA News.

This proposal is less than originally planned, but it’s something Krier supports.

“I am absolutely going to vote for it,” he said.

His neighbor in District 8 said the city shouldn’t be doing this.

“I do not believe that the current program uses annexation wisely,” Councilman Ron Nirenberg said.

He does not think the city has justified it.

“We have infrastructure and services needs that we currently cannot meet,” he said, and this is before annexation.

The council votes Thursday morning.
